      Grazing animals need to be managed in order to accommodate desired results in terms of animal, plant, land and economic responses. Grazing Management, Second Edition integrates principles and management techniques that apply to all grazing lands and to all grazing animals. This comprehensive volume provides authoritative review on a wide range of 5/5(1).   Heavy snow is tough going for wildlife in the winter months, and as a consequence this year, wildlife officials fear there will be a higher than normal die-off of elk .

    For instance, feeding programs only reach a small portion of the targeted deer and elk and can permanently divert deer and elk off traditional winter range, according to the ODFW. Beetles range in size from both the largest and very nearly the smallest insects in the world and occupy more different habitats and niches than any other class of insect. The bodies of beetles have three main parts: head, thorax, and abdomen.

Because spring is normally dry and summer precipitation evaporates before it can contribute to recharging soil moisture, plant growth depends mainly on winter moisture (Williams ).

Winter range is that part of the overall range of elk where 90% of the individuals are located during the average five winters out of ten from the first heavy snowfall to spring green-up, or during a site specific period of winter as defined for each Data Analysis Unit.

Cascade mountains, the Bunchgrass Zone includes some of British Columbia’s warmest and driest areas. Summer temperatures range from warm to hot, becoming progressively cooler to the north and west, and winters are moderately cold.

The dominant herbivores in the study area that browse on woody species in the winter are elk and mule deer. As might be expected from examples of browsing effects in a variety of ecosystems [ 38 – 40, 74 ], release from browsing increased densities of the most common adult-sized sagebrush (50– cm) in our study.
